The Nasdaq powered DX.Exchange has officially announced the highly anticipated launch of Security token trading and Security token offerings (STO).

In order to facilitate this, Forbes relays that the exchange will restructure into DXtech Exchange, as per an announcement from CEO Daniel Skowronski at the TOKEN2049 conference:

“We believe that all assets whether its securities, art or real-estate will be tokenized. This tokenization has many benefits but the strongest is the ability to help create wealth for people all over the world no matter their social economic situation. At DX, we can help trade the untradeable.” Skowronski said during the conference.

Potential traders will have to undergo know-your-customer checks as per EU regulatory law.

Working alongside DXtech, MPS will list security tokens and act as a counterparty for all trades on the platform; buying from one client and selling to the other.
